Ann Death, widowed,31 born Shouldham Norfolk.

Did you check freebmd for a possible re-marriage given she was only 31?

There is a likely one in 1882 for an Anna Death in Huntingdon

Freebmd has a possible death for James in 1936 and John in 1941 - have you checked them out?

Have you looked for John on the 1939 register?
